This week "Bunte" magazine as an article about a party in Berlin with a picture of a woman and her sister with the subtitle: Caroline von Linsingen, who was seen for a long time with Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia" ( page 151, not at Bunte homepage).

Does anybody know, if they were a couple ???

It seems so and Bunte is most of the times well informed and normally doesn't afloat false rumors ( they even tend to hold things down not to be taken to court).

I have some pictures of her ( she is a external PhD student at the faculty of economics at Humbolt University of Berlin.

Not new, rather old, because they said she was seen with him, but not that they are still seen together.

Prince Georg Friedrich took part in the Christmas staff party at Hohenzollern castle. Link

Btw has anyone heard anything about the selling of Wümmehof. The only more recent article I could find is this one and it still doesn't say if Wümmehof is sold by now or if Prince Christian had moved out.
--> Found the answer myself: It isn't sold yet :)

It's quite an old news, but still not posted AFAIK.
Per-Edvard Lithander, former husband of the late Princess Xenia of Prussia, died on 9 May 2010, aged 64.
He had been married to Princess Xenia, youngest daughter of Prince Louis Ferdinand and Princess Kira, from 1973 to 1978 (when they divorced) and they had two sons together, Patrick and Sebastian. Princess Xenia predeceased them in 1992.

But I see just now on the photos he has something like a rash on his neck

The imperial line in Germany has a distinct "look" from the Kaiser of WW1 time all the way down to Prince George Friedrich. I think that it's the nose. Of course, Kaiser Wilhelm's mother was Queen Victoria's daughter. Perhaps that's where the common look comes from. In some pictures of Prince William, I see a resemblance to George Friedrich. Again, I think that it's the long nose and the colouring.

Hello all, I've been on hiatus!

At any rate, I highly doubt Prinz Christian is being kicked out. I'm sure he's known for awhile - homes of this size take some time to sell, even if it is owned by famous people. It's really a bloody shame, the house is beautiful. I've never been in it, but I used to live about 5 minutes away by car in the neighboring section of Oberneuland. My friend sold her gorgeous house three doors down. If you know the area, you would be sad for that alone forgetting the property. But it's a really massive piece of land extending well into the back, and it's difficult to discern that from the street facade.

I don't believe that this is an easy decision for any involved, His Royal Highness least of all. Indeed, GF spent his childhood there but so did almost all his immediate family! Many memories are being sold along with bricks and mortar.... As for what he's doing -- possibly the same. von Preussen's his name and royaling is his game. I haven't heard any news that he's keeping a 9 to 5, but predominantly staying involved in family charities and the whatnot. And no girlfriends either, so you can breathe that sigh of relief. I am not going to be as naive to say he's not been seeing anyone - he's young AND he's a Gemini ^_^ And if you buy into any of those ridiculous "gay" rumours, then I have a bridge to sell you!!

Whether these relationships have been serious or not is the sticking point. At any rate, despite its implications, I believe GF will marry the woman most suited to the rank even if she is *not* royal. Oh, yes, he's paid the lip service that she'll probably be from the geborene, but in reality, well...that could be something mightily different. And whilst the proverbial s**t will more than likely hit the fan for any decision along those lines, it seems that he, having made the decision to marry non-royal, would stick to his guns. After all, technically speaking, he's not part of the generation that was expected to marry along their own rank and can do as he pleases. Yes, marrying a royal or aristocrat makes his life significantly easier, but I think this one is a rogue who just might follow his heart no matter where it leads him.

Lately, I think any discussion on this topic is banal and redundant because you see the self-same uncles who are suing him, chatting him up at events like the hypocrites they quite possibly could be. The family keeps quite mum about the whole situation because really it's no one else's business but theirs. Nonetheless, I feel there are significant factors we are not considering because we aren't part of the drama. And I feel that his not marrying royal won't factor in one iota, because he's unmarried now and they are *still* tilting at windmills for his money and being typically German talking up and down about laws and precedents. If only they had has as much determination to keep their rights in the first place as they had to marry common women!!

Lastly, some extra thoughts...I don't believe that GF is broke. Well, unless 51M Euro is broke (maybe for wealthy people he's slumming it). GF strikes me as a very pragmatic man. Yes, it's sad to sell off property that you've owned for centuries, but really -- why not? The most striking and elegant buildings aren't theirs anymore: Cecilienhof, Sansouci, Charlottenburg...they've been gone for awhile. And while it's very romantic to hold onto these gorgeous properties, I can't believe that it's easy maintaining them! They have to cost a cool 2M Euro annually EACH just to have them looking kempt!!! Forget running them or staffing them. Other than Burg Hohenzollern, which feeds itself with admission fees and tourism, it's a perpetual drain to keep them. You have to consider Preussen isn't a tax earning entity anymore. He's not winning any wars for wealth or territory. It's the 21st century, as dismal as it seems and the romantic era is a bygone conclusion =( So, I'm not shocked or saddened because I believe he understands this and is trying to maintain enough to collect and invest to maintain the House of Preussen as a solvent entity. Also, if it's any consolation, they will not disappear when they're sold! People will still look back for generations and revel in the history of these wonderful places and the name of Preussen will always be on them. And that, I think, is worth more than the money!

Thank you Elena for your long comment.

Georg has indeed no 9 to 5, because its extremely hard to combine a 9 to 5 job with such many duties he has as head of the general administration of the former royal house of prussia and the prussian family.

Georg works as a venture manager for engage AG - and I guess he does something like freelance work.

Engage AG is a professional, but small firm in an even smaller sector in germany. They seem to be succesful in what they do, but as being a specialist in the sector of consultancy only few people know them.
I think Georg is quite intelligent and very well educated - he could get nearly any job in any firm if he wants to.
So I guess he works for this particular firm because this business pleases him and not so much for the money or for a certain reputation.

NP Seraphine. It's been awhile since I've been on this site. I had other business keeping me away, but now that there's an iPhone app! LOL....

Anyhow, GF has no recent news except his scheduled events he is showing up on. That's basically it. Maybe a little freelance work as you said here and there. But I stand by what I say on the girlfriend thing. If it were just a matter of marry rich and royal and learn to love later, he would have been married already and having kids. So, something tells me he's waiting for "her" not von or zu something...for HER, whether her name has a prefix or not. If she's aristocracy or not, this legal problem STILL will NOT go away, so his marriage is a moot point. It's just an excuse for his uncles to go after him but not a cause or a solution. They are just feeling it's unfair. Well, waa waa boo hoo -- shoulda thought of that in the first place!

So you are saying that aristocratioc women aren't also looking for love? That they would be happy to marry a Prince they didn't love simply because he is a Prince? The evidence of Princess who marry doesn't seem to agree with this. I think that the 'problem'os that he hasn't found someone he loves who loves him and is also aristocratic.
In the ned, as I don't know the guy and I suspect, no one here does, we will bever know.
